WORCESTER, Mass. – Head coach Bill Gibbons and the women's basketball program held its annual golf outing on Friday, Sept. 20, 2013 at the Green Hill Golf Course in Worcester, Mass. Over 20 people participated in the tournament benefiting the women's basketball program.

"Our 18th annual legends golf tournament was a big success," Gibbons said. "The mix of friends and family of the program, alumnae and our current team and coaches made it a special day at Green Hill. Our legend, Anna Kinne Patel, gave a terrific message to our team in her speech. She and her family members really enjoyed the day! Finally, kudos to our rookie assistant coach, Matt Raquet, who did a great job organizing this 'friend-raiser'."
